## Algebra 1: Common Core (15th Edition)

The answer is C: $3^{3}$$\times$$8^{2}$
The Commutative Property of Multiplication states that the order in which things are multiplied does not matter. Thus, it follows: 3$\times$3$\times$8$\times$8$\times$3=3$\times$3$\times$3$\times$8$\times$8 Because 8 squared equals 8$\times$8 and 3 cubed equals 3$\times$3$\times$3, this can be simplified to: $3^{3}$$\times$$8^{2}$. Therefore, C is the correct answer.
